The Visit are a duo from Ottawa, Canada that plays an experimental form of avant garde classical music with metal influences and this is a review of their self released 2015 album "Through Darkness Into Light".
Cello playing starts off the album and is also very diverse in the way the instrument is approached and when female vocals are added onto the recording they are very ethereal and operatic sounding and at times the cello's get very extreme and add a touch of black metla onto the recording.
Most of the tracks are very long and epic in length and the only instruments that are present on the recording are cello's and vocals and the songs also bring in elements of neo folk, classical, avant garde, progressive and chamber music along with some touches of Middle Eastern and Persian music which also gives the recording more of a tribal and ethnic feeling.
The Visit plays a musical style that is mostly done with cello's and vocals and is mostly rooted in neo folk, classical, chamber and ethnic music while also having a touch of black metal, the production sounds very powerful for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion The Visit are a very great sounding experimental, avant garde classical music project with a touch of metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this duo. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Without The Flesh" and "Through Darkness". 8 out of 10.
